Immediately following the death of Gen- eral John B. Hood and his wife, the Louisiana Divisions of the Armies of Northern Virginia and Tennessee met and appointed committees to gather together a fund for the benefit of the children. These committees organized at once, and under date of September 6th, 1879— one week after the funeral — issued the following address : HOOD RELIEF FUND. Desolation and possible destitution have fallen upon the once happy household of General John B. Hood. Mrs. Ann* Mahie Hood, the devoted wife and mother, died on the evening of August 24th, 1879. Genl. Hood, the bereaved husband and father, followed on the morning of August 30 th, leaving behind them in full orphanage, eleven children of tender years. Lydia, the eldest of these, died on the evening of the same day. There now survive ten children, the eldest of whom are twins, of the age of nine years and two months. The youngest is one month old. The condition of his estate leaves but little hope that there will remain after settlement of his indebtedness, anything for his children other than such proceeds as may possibly be derived from the publication of its history of the war and records. The generous heart of the country has already been moved to the grateful recognition of the virtues, the chivalry and self-sacrificing devotion of the departed hero, and to an active and giving sympathy for the living. The undersigned Committees, appointed by the Asso- ciations of the Armies Northern Virginia and Ten- nessee, to receive these funds (which are to be invested in U. S. bonds), earnestly solicit your co-operation and assistance in raising a sum which shall be sufficient for the support, maintenance and education of these orphans. W. R. LYMAN, Chairman. F. T. NICHOLLS, J. A. CHALARON, J AS. BUCKNER, G.T.BEAUREGARD, SAMUEL FLOWER, S. D. STOCKMAN, D. R. CALDER, FRED. N. OGDEN, JOHN H. MURRAY, WALTER V. CROUCH, Of Army N. Virginia. Of Army of Tennessee. Address Box 1695, New Orleans, La. The tirst response was from the orphans' friend, " Margaret," who sent the Committee a bond of the United States for five hundred dollars. This was quickly followed by dona- tions from Mr. Blanc and others, and the fund gradually increased until November 13th, 1881, when Genl. Herbert, of Baltimore, sent in the last contribution. At a meeting of the General Committee held August 3d, 1885, nearly six years having elapsed since its organization, it was resolved to put into permanent shape for the benefit of the children and contributors of the fund, a list of all sums received and in the order of receipt, together with a statement of the present status of the fund. The Committee intends to capitalize the in- terest as fast as received until such time as its members can legally be relieved of the trust. The children have all been in excellent hands, and unless some unforeseen accident should oc- cur will receive a thorough education without any draft upon this fund. Respectfully, W. R. LYMAN, Chairman, J. A. CHALARON, Secretary. DONATIONS. 1879. Sept. 8. From Margaret Haughery & Co., New Orleans, bond $ 500 00 Sept. 8. From Sam. P. Blanc, N. O... 25 00 Sept. 9.

Greene and Samuel Flower 55 25 General Greene writes : " It is the result of a little benefit we got up in Portland, Oregon, for Hood's children, at ihe time Gen. Grant was here. Col. Morrow (whom many Louisi- anians know and more will remember) and I started the matter and was at once fully and heartily assisted by Col. W. H. Efringer, for- merly from Staunton, Va., and C. S. A., and by Mr. John Maguire, managerof the Portland Theatre, who kindly gave one-half of the gross proceeds of one night's performance at his the- atre — we to provide attendance of the band of Col. Morrow's Regiment, which was done. The amount is very small, but is better than nothing, and shows at ieast that everybody's heart is in the right place. The sum would have been very much greater except lor the misfortune that we could only have the benefit on the night of Gen. Grant's reception, to which nearly every man, woman and child in this county went. Long before his arrival here he had been engaged (engagements which he could not properly do away with) for the other two nights he was in Oregon, but like theold Roman and Hero he is, he deserted his own reception at a very early hour and went to the Theatre, where "he sat conscientiously through a long and rather dreary performance of " Ours" in the hope of helping dear old Hood's little oues."

W. W. Screws, Montgomery, Ala., and Gen. G. T. Beauregard 643 33 The letter accompanying this remittance reads : " At the risk of being tedious, it is proper to make statement of the way in which this money was realized. About November 1st, last, some citizens of Louisville, Ky., were impressed by the beautiful act of the children of Gen. Joseph Wheeler, in giving 4 bale of Cotton for the benefit of the orphan children of a fellow-soldier of their own gallant father, and sent to him one of " Deering's Horse Power," a splendid piece of farm machinery, to be dis- posed of as he might deem best, and proceeds to be given to the children of Gen. Hood. About the same time, some generous ladies of Smith's Station, Lee Co., Ala., sent to me a bale of Cotton to be disposed of for the same purpose. It was decided to issue three thou- 27 sand tickets at 50 cents each, and have the articles disposed of by drawing. Immediately on this announcement, various other contribu- tions were made, as follows : One White Sewing Machine, by Capt. G. L. Werth. One Fine Family Bible, by Mr. Joel White. One lot Tobacco] by Major Black nail. One Silk Umbrella, by Mr. H. C. Davidson. One Fine Picture Frame, by Mr. C. E. Wallin. One Picture, "Monument to Columbus at Genoa," by Mr. C. J. Payne. One Pine Apple Silk Handkerchief, by Mrs. C. J. Payne. One dozen Frames and Brushes, by Mr. S. Schuenler. Two braids of their own hair, by little daughters of Mr. A. S. Gerald, which were added to the list to be drawn. Owing to un- avoidable circumstances, the drawing did not take place until Friday, 16lh January. All tickets, sold and unsold, were put in the wheel, the latter being considered the property of the children. The number cf tickets sold and paid for, was 968, making $484. Out of this was paid $27 for all expenses. The Louisville and Ts ash- ville Railroad transported the Horse Power from Louisville here free of cost. The Western Railroad of Alabama, delivered the bale of Cotton without charge, and the necessary haul- ing in this city was done cheerfully without cost. The Hood children drew the bale of Cotton and the Horse Power. The former was resold for $55 13, and the latter for $100. This amount is included in the draft. Citizens of Haynesville, Ala., also sent to Mr. H. C. Davidson, through Messrs. Streety & Co., $31 20, as contribution to the fund. This amount is also included in the draft, the sum total being $643 33. The children also drew 28 the Silk Handkerchief and the Bible and the picture of the Monument to Columbus, all of which are sent this day to you by Southern Express, the Company transporting same free. It has been suggested by Gen. Wheeler that you write the names and date of birth of the children in the Bible." Feb. 4. From G. A. Jackson, Lawton- ville, Ga., thro' Col. Sam'l Flower..? 6 00 Feb. 9.

Columbia 67 50 Oregon 55 25 Tennessee 43 15 France 40 00 Poland 20 00 $19,875 66 The Committee at Atlanta, Ga., sent a further sum of $300 for the immediate wants of the children, which was immediately paid over to their natural tutrix, and the "Committee at Houston, Texas, sent a further sum, exceeding we believe $1000, direct to the same, to be used in like manner. 33 The Committee undertook a great labor in attempting to realize a sum from the sale of photographs of the family. It was a work re- quiring much correspondence and constant at- tention to details. Its success depended almost entirely upon the good faith and earnest dispo- sition of men and women scattered over an im- mense territory and with whom necessarily the members of the Committee, in numberless cases, could have no personal acquaintance. We took every means to ascertain standing, but the number of photographs which are unreturned for and are still unheard from, runs into the thousands. In very many cases lists of names were sent in and the pictures sent oui accord- ingly and no money ever returned therefor. Mr. Lilienthal, the photographer, made a very liberal arrangement with the Committee, but the amount of pictures left on our hands, to- gether with the amount in the hands of Com- mittees and individuals, caused the Committee and Mr. Lilienthal both heavy loss. As it was there was added to the general fund, after pay- ing expenses, from this source, only, $425. Mention should be made of the active co-ope- ration extended this Committee by friends and Committees at Atlanta, Baltimore. Helena, Ark., Greenville, Miss., Selma, Montgomery, Monroe, La., Charleston, Louisville and St. Louis. We were greatly assisted by the Press everywhere. By reference to the list it w 11 be seen that the leading papers in several cities made themselves the avenue through which funds could reach the Committee, and no charge was made by New Orleans papers for notices or advertisements. Stationery and printing was donated by A. W. Hyatt and A. H. Nelson, in amount adequate to our wants. Dunn Brothers furnished letter files, and T. Fitzwilliam our bank box. The expenses of the Committee were thus reduced to a minimum. 34 Numerous offers were received of books, entertainments, musical productions, etc., etc., which involved a greater or less expenditure of funds all of which had to be declined, the committee not feeling authorized to venture any of the funds donated in anything of a speculative nature. Jt only remains for the committee to ap- pend, for information of all, a statement made up to August 1st, 1885. Funds invested in U. S- 4 per cent. Bonds, coupons next due October 1st, 1885.
